With North Sydney’s best beaches just down the road and the CBD just a 13km ride away, the small, local, and family-friendly community of Frenchs Forest is shaping up to be the new ‘it’ suburb north of the city. The sense of pride amongst its neighbourhoods is infectious as friendly locals meet and greet each other on the quiet streets, with several great schools nearby making this area a huge drawcard for young families looking for space to grow.
The power of a strong local community should never be underestimated, and the town of Frenchs Forest is the perfect example of how a friendly neighbourhood can build a reputation for itself. Known for its leafy green streets full of welcoming folk out for their morning dog walk, kids couldn’t hope for a safer community to spend their days roaming the streets and playing in the natural parks that surround it.
With the recent opening of the Northern Beaches Hospital, a major coo for this small coastal community, more industry, and interest than ever are coming through and bringing with it an exciting new turn of trend for the area. Case and point is some impressive new residential architecture popping up across Peppercorn Ridge, with many young families moving into the area and making marked improvements on the aesthetic of the town as a whole.
The town itself is host to some incredible organic food markets that have exceptional local produce on offer, along with Forestway Shopping Centre which is home to almost 40 retailers. The four local schools – Forest High, Frenchs Forest Public School, Mimosa Public School, and Davidson High School – have all increased their enrolments in recent years to keep up with the growing demand, but remain the heart and soul of the community feeling this beautiful township has to offer.
